Electronic Arts is working on an official PGA Tour golf video game for the Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
Developed in EA’s Frostbite engine, EA Sports PGA Tour will include a full career mode, many of the world’s best-known golf courses, and a full roster of events, including The Players Championship and FedExCup Playoffs.
The game is the first PGA title from EA since Rory McIlroy PGA Tour in 2015. The publisher says the move to the Frostbite engine promises “stunning fidelity, breathtaking immersive environments, and approachable, dynamic gameplay.”
Speaking about the new game, Cam Weber, EVP & GM at EA Sports, says:
“EA Sports and the PGA Tour have created some of the most memorable golf video game experiences together, and we couldn’t be more excited to expand our sports portfolio with a new golf title on next-gen hardware. Our team of passionate golf fans is meticulously recreating the world’s top courses such as Pebble Beach, and we can’t wait to give fans the opportunity to compete on some of the most iconic PGA Tour courses and win the FedExCup.”
Len Brown, executive vice president licensing and merchandising at PGA Tour, adds:
“We’ve partnered with EA Sports to bring immersive golf video game experiences to fans of all ages for years. We are thrilled to continue working with EA Sports on its golf franchise to authentically represent the PGA TOUR for the next generation. The newest game will give golf fans another way to experience their favorite sport, or to discover their passion for it.”
EA Sports PGA Tour is in development at EA Tiburon in Florida, the studio best known for EA’s Madden franchise. At the time of publication, the fate of 2K’s PGA series, last seen with PGA Tour 2K21, is unknown.
